Session 03: A social network analysis, the basics

EduBox 03 – Session 03

A social network analysis, the basics

Social networks are becoming more complex and are increasingly cutting across different fields of life. By using a social network analysis to study these relations, the various links between actors become visible, as well as the densities, strengths and weaknesses of the ties. Thus, a social network analysis is not only able to help us to understand complex social relations but can also provide us with a basis to manage them and consider interventions carefully.
The purpose of this session is therefore to introduce students to the basic tools of social network analysis.
